STD or sexually transmitted diseases are caused by viruses or bacterias that are transmitted through exchanged of body fluids through sexual activities, blood transfusions or sharing of needles during drug abuse.

STD’s caused by bacteria are curable and can be easily treated with some prescribed medicine for 2 weeks. Symptoms includes itchiness, burning sensation when urinating, appearance of yeasts, smelly fish-like odor, bleeding during sex, redness of the private area. Gonorrhea, Clamydia and syphilis belong to this group. Symptoms can be felt as early as 3rd day from infected contact but some people claimed no symptoms. Get tested for these diseases and get immediate prescription and consultation because it can result to other serious diseases like infertility.

STD’s caused by virus are non-curable but treatable. They are caused by virus and they re-occur and cannot be cured. The symptoms maybe similar to STD’s that are caused by bacteria but these viruses can attack and damage the immune system and spread easily inside the body. The symptoms may reoccur but through drug maintenance they are reduced up to undetectable. HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis C belongs to this group.
